Re: “Interview: Scott Avett Talks The Avett Brothers' True Sadness, Not Becoming a Farmer, And Not Making a Statement on HB 2

Why this? Americans are sadly, myopically fixated on this and similar issues. Artists as well as ordinary citizens should be quietly and diligently personally devoted at all times to human dignity and basic rights. It doesn't have to be a show. Children die. Actually die - because their sleep is unsafe! If American children were dying in rates that malaria kills little Africans, we'd be up in arms (I hope). Little girls are forcibly circumcised. Others are sold into slavery. Women are stoned. Children with "defects" (deaf, Downs Syndrome) are treated like garbage, abused, neglected. We don't publicly condemn our celebrities for not speaking out on these atrocities. Why? If we are all equal citizens of the world, why do we care so much less about the horrific living conditions and substandard lives of the truly poor, and focus instead on "rights" of people who have, by world standards, EVERYTHING. Sorry is this is a bit of a rant, but having grown up in a third-world nation, this is my perspective.

Re: “Live: People still care about Conor Oberst?

Gotta just plain snicker at anyone who calls Taylor Goldsmith's (Dawes) exquisite lyrics "clunky". Ever in your life read any real poetry? And dismissing Dawes elegant and complex harmonies with a "power chords" put-down? Bruce, my eye. Have a real listen next time.
